What you need to know before your trail

When a skull is found in Lough Coyne, facial reconstruction expert Dr Carla Steele is drawn into a fourteen-year-old case – but not all cases are cold, as Carla discovers when she and DS Jack Maguire find the brutally murdered body of a local woman close to the water’s edge.

Together with Carla’s partner, criminal psychologist Grace Franciosi, Carla and Jack uncover a tragic story with very dangerous and current implications.

Since the disappearance of her best friend, Carla has dedicated her career to bringing the dead home, but this time it’s the living who are counting on her. In a race to save another woman, will they be able to stop the killer in time?



Travel Guide

Dublin and County Mayo

Three Little Birds is set in the fictional location of Coynes Cross, beside Lough Coyne in County Mayo, and this landing stage is on the Coyne Estate. It’s great to imagine where this might really be and there are a few places on the map where it could be. Imagine finding something dodgy like a skull in a lake and then having someone from the Garda come and work with it to find out who it is!

Two top locations in Dublin and County Mayo and you get all the charm and remoteness of the Irish coungtryside with a side helping of murder and mystery in the hands of Irish Crime Queen, Sam Blake!
